Happy St Patrick's Day! This is a fun and easy phonological awareness activity that can be used in centers or in small language groups.
*5 pages of picture cards with rhyming words
*5 pages of cards with rhyming words only
*5 game mats
*1 bonus word finding worksheet
Print, cut and laminate the picture cards with rhyming words and the cards with rhyming words only.
Print and laminate the 5 game mats – the pages with pictures only. Do not cut these out.
To play the game, give each child a game mat. Depending on the skill level of the students, determine if you will use the cards with pictures or not. Turn the cards upside down on the table as if you are playing memory. Players take turns choosing cards from the table. If the player picks a card that matches his/her mat the player place it on one of the squares on the mat. For example, anything that rhymes with gold belongs on the gold mat. The first player to cover his/her mat first wins!
